Justice is an attitude. It is a painful reality that a vast majority of individuals in our legal and judicial system do not possess the desired attitude of doing justice both with friend and foe alike.

In the prevalent situation, this nation needs a just and fair system. In other more successful democracies, judicial institutions dispense justice on egalitarian grounds. Our state institutions are driven by inequality and self-interest. The ruling elite are watching out for their own interests while the common citizens suffer. They do not want to reform the judicial system because they do not want to let go of the advantages they have. Injustice prevails.
